Have you ever been SO excited to share something new that you can hardly contain yourself? We’ve been waiting and waiting to share this news and it’s a wonder we haven’t burst with excitement! Please allow us to introduce (drum roll please) Flex-Foam™!
Flex-Foam™ is a lightweight sew-in stabilizer consisting of a layer of foam sandwiched between two layers of soft fabric. It can be used in place of or in addition to other stabilizers, is an absolute breeze to sew through and will add a soft shape and body to any project.
It is excellent for use in crafts, accessories, and home décor projects. We particularly love it for
- camera cases
- lunch totes
- eyeglass cases
- diaper bags
- & storage baskets
but have a feeling that you’ll come up with your own fabulous uses for this great new product. Let your imagination run wild!
In honor of the product launch, we created a handy little foldover lunch tote. The easy how-to is available via Joann.com and should be on display as a FREE project sheet in Jo-Ann Fabric & Craft Stores starting this week. Spring is almost here, which is an excellent time for a little lunch tote refresh. Make them for your kids, your friends or for yourself. The tote features a PUL lining (so easy to clean!) and easy instructions to personalize the tote so you’ll always know which one is yours!
